A 29-year-old Eutawville mother of two is facing one count each of domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and unlawful conduct toward a child.
Deputies arrested Jenna Marie Haines, of 197 Training Road, after her boyfriend called deputies to their home just after 10 p.m. following a dispute that ended with a shot fired.
Haines’ boyfriend claims they had been drinking alcohol throughout the day prior to the two of them having an argument that night.
He alleges that Haines left the home for about 10 minutes, but when she returned, she retrieved an AR-15 located on top of the refrigerator.
He took the gun from her, removed the magazine and put it in their bedroom closet.

He said Haines followed him into the bedroom and she removed a 9mm handgun, which had been tucked between the mattresses.
At that point, Haines’ boyfriend walked outside and then heard a gunshot from inside of the home.
He claims that Haines fired the handgun into the closet.
Their 10-month-old child was in the bedroom when Haines allegedly fired the shot and their 3-year-old child was in another bedroom in the direction of where the bullet traveled, according to an incident report.
Warrants allege that Haines admitted she fired the handgun with her two children nearby in the home.
On Monday, Orangeburg County Magistrate James Rickenbacker set Haines’ bond at $7,500 cash or surety.
If she’s convicted, she faces up to 20 years in prison.
